Whenever I google ms i keep reading a alphabet of supplements people take and I’ve got no idea where to start I take a vitamin d oral spray once a day and that’s pretty much it can you guys list out what you take daily and discuss any benefits etc
Test, do not guess. Each person has different needs, and those needs change over time. A functional medicine doctor can tell you exactly what you need by conducting lab tests so you do not waste money and feel better faster. I personally do well on 50,000 IU liquid Vitamin D drops and 1500mg evening primrose oil, and methylated B Vitamins including B-12. I take nearly 15 supplements daily, but again I cannot recommend anything for anyone else other than getting a work-up. Wishing you well!
15!!! Jeesh I only take 2000iu of vitamin d
surely 50,000 a day would be toxic for you?
I only take vitamin D when I was first diagnosed (2011) my doctor told me to take 2000iu daily. Last year he told me to bump it up to 4000iu. Also the first 4+ years I took Avanox once a week, then changed to tysabri. I recommend talking to your doctor about anything and everything you take.
